Back into planes

Well Im new to this site, but I have been into RC since I was about 11 years old. I guess its been 20 years now. I started out with cars/buggies. Then as I got older i got into Planes. Then I had kids. didn't have much time to go flying so I got into Nitro cars/trucks. My kids are 5 and 4 now and I decided they were at the age that I could take them flying with me. I decided to get into Electric planes. I have a Gws tiger moth 3d and e-starter. I decided that they just didnt have that performance i was use to. So i decided to get a couple of thunder tiger electric planes. I have an Expo 3d and a christian eagle 3d. The Expo has a brushless system with 3 lipo pack. This plane is amazing. It will do all the 3d tricks as good as a Nitro plane. With rates set a min in acts like a trainer easily controllable an floats like a ballon, with rates set at maxx its incredible. The Christian eagle is even more maneuverable even with the stock power system it will perform outstanding, although its not for a begginer. Both of these planes are the worlds best kept secret. You want a great 3d plane than look no further. I just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks to a member on this site. His site name is Ironside. He is a great person and I got my fist electric plane off of him. He gave me some great pointers to make my first "come back" flight a great one. Well thats my story and Im glad to be back into it.

Welcome to the RC Canada site. It is truly a great resource populated by great people. Lots of shared knowledge here!
It's also kinda addictive.

Planes, Pedals, and Motorcycles! (In that order!)

I stopped being politically correct when I found out that some people were offended by it.

Re: back into planes

Good to read your post, I too have just rejoined the ranks after a 5 year break due to career/business time restrictions. Things haven't changed much in that regard, but I have missed flying AND the guys in our local club. I started out with control line planes on my own as a kid in Brantford, Ont in the early 60's - got my stuff at the Big Top hobby shop - how many remember the store? It was when Brantford actually HAD a downtown! Crashed lots, no experienced help. Then sidelined for many years, bought R/C equipment as an adult in Calgary after I quit motorcyle racing - H.P. SiverStar.40 from PMS Hobbies, RCM Trainer 40, and Kraft electronics. Learned to fly at C.R.A.M.S. field in Ogden. No crashes, but had to put things as life events took a turn for the worse (marriage failure, non R/C related). Sidelined again and sold my stuff a few years later to a friend who was getting back into R/C. Started again with new equipment in '92 with H.C.R.C.C. in Saskatoon - good guys, great field. Got into precision aerobatics, great for skill development and flying with a plan. Involved with club executive for several years, but had to take a break when I left the employ of others to start my own business venture - hasn't been easy, but it hasn't been boring. Rejoined the club about a month ago, went for one flight with one of the club instructors to check for skill degradation and found to my pleasant surprise it is 'still there' ! So I dug out the equipment, bought new battery packs and away we go. Aerobatics is still my primary interest, but leaning more towards Scale than Precision. Love BIG planes and BIG engines, but still have small budget. Life. I have learned to do the best I can with what I got and leave my dreams with the One who knows best. One of the club members told me about RCC, so I have checked it out - GREAT SITE - to be able to share in this great 'hobby' with others across the country gives me a sense of a much larger club involvement, brings back memories when I see postings from people in places I used to live. IN short, its good to be here Boomer
